There are almost no tourists in Herceg Novi in January, so the hotel was very quiet and may be quite different in summer, but I loved its friendly atmosphere and location between the one-way street that runs through the middle of Herceg Novi and the sea. The Vila Aleksandar is down a small side road which descends from the main road right beside the brash-looking Hotel Plaza and you can get into it from above or from the paved coastal path below. Steps beside the hotel, with its pretty garden, lead between the different levels. The hotel is only 10 minutes' walk from the old town and centre. Its pool usually opens on 1st June. There are 12 bedrooms in the main part of the hotel accessible through reception, most with views of the sea and many with balconies, though some look inland over the garden, and from some you have only a sideways view of the sea once you are on the balcony. There are other four more rooms beside the pool and nine in a separate annexe a bit above the main hotel (high season only). Rooms on the first floor have bath tubs, whereas on the top floor they have showers with rather inefficient shower curtains so water escapes onto the bathroom floor. The loo paper being of a rough texture echoes the atmosphere of the place -- old-fashioned and not luxurious, but functional! Breakfast and other meals are served in the hotel's Aquarius restaurant, right on the coastal path which must be crowded in high season but was almost empty in January. Ljupka (on reception) speaks very good English and is straightforward, helpful and very nice. I paid 35.50 euros for a single room B&B and seemed to me the best value in the area. The location by the sea and close to the centre, and the character of the hotel make this a really special place.
